Pastor Brian is a native Floridian, born in Titusville on Florida’s Space Coast. Brian graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a B. A. in Christian Leadership and a minor in Philosophy. Before becoming lead pastor at Church of the Suncoast, Brian spent nine years in youth ministry in various churches in Florida.

At age seven, God birthed the dream for the Suncoast in Brian as he led a Bible club with his friends where they played church in his tree house. Since then, God led Brian and his wife Cheryl to launch the Suncoast in April of 2006 to help people take their next steps with God by doing church outside the box.

Other than spending time with Cheryl and eating chips and salsa on date nights, Brian enjoys Miami Hurricane football, NASCAR, golf, and catching a ride on friend’s boats when he can. Brian and Cheryl had their first child, Sophie Marie, in December 2011. And, welcomed Ella Grace in the summer of 2016.
